Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Ansel Wells papers consist of diaries, letters, and a tuition receipt. Wells kept the two diaries (1860, 1861-1862) while he was living in Pharsalia, New York. The brief daily entries record his farm work, social life, and religious activities. The tuition receipt (1859) represents Wells' attendance at the Cincinnatus Academy in Cincinnatus, New York. Six letters (1847-1853) from H. P. Herrick to his family in Pharsalia describe his life as a student at Amherst College and as a teacher in New Jersey and New York after graduation. There is also a letter from Hettie Herrick, H. P.'s sister, to their sister Mary. Mary Herrick married Ansel Wells in 1861.
